Amaryllis indoors

I’ve had good luck with getting some red amaryllis to rebloom. I treat them like houseplants and give them summers outside on the sunny patio. The geraniums behind it do well that way, too.

Hellebores in the rain

A mini garden tour yesterday at a friend’s garden in Kent, WA, taking advantage of no rain falling. She has so many beautiful hellebores.

Three peaches

This small painting, Three Peaches on a Plate by Henri Fantin-Latour, was painted in 1868, almost 150 years ago. I saw it at the Seattle Art Museum Impressionism show. I think it was my favorite painting there.
